BRUSSELS – A young Iraqi girl who was seriously injured by a US cluster bomb in Baghdad has arrived in Belgium for surgery, it was reported on Wednesday.

The 13-year-old girl was injured last December as she went to buy bread.

If she had stayed in Iraq for treatment she would almost certainly have had to have at least part of a limb amputated, Belgian news agency Belga reported.
